CO2 detector in every classroom in the Netherlands!

Each classroom will be equipped with a CO2 detector to check whether students and teachers are breathing enough healthy air. There will also be a helpline for schools, an emergency service of experts who will help to organize the ventilation. The ministry is making 17 million euros available for the purchase of CO2 detectors.


The parties involved emphasize that these agreements will not solve all ventilation problems at once but it will help to improve on short term. Research shows that more needs to be done to improve outdated school buildings and make them more sustainable.


In any case, this is a step in the right direction!
